Lovely spot beside the lake and a large area for camping. Flush toilets and running water in the bathrooms. Really picturesque and worth $8 a night. Dog friendly. A nice escape from the business of central Rotorua!

Very basic with nothing special, but met our needs. Sunrise in the morning was pretty and the campground was quiet.

Lakeside camping that can get busy over summer, but is still much quieter than the busier lakes close to Rotorua. Not super flash, but for most of the year you'll get to stay here without a crowd.

Park up next to the lake if you like. Awesome sunsets and sunrises across the misty lake in winter. Very peaceful place and in summer the lake is a great swim off the jetty. Been a favourite for many years. Flushing toilets, fresh drinking water, electric BBQ but nothing else.

Very nice location with clean facilities. We were in the camp alone, and the sunny morning near the lake was amazing - birds singing and everything. Very pleasant place to stay overnight.

This is a nice quiet place to camp and fish. Good clean facilities. Rubbish needed to be picked up. Good fishing in the lake for large rainbows.
